Lord & Taylor’s classic holiday windows are delightfully romantic and offer a vintage look at New York City. A giant Santa helps himself to cocoa in one window, while in another, jazz musicians glide in and out. Planes, trains, automobiles — and even a hot-air balloon — fill another window. It is good that some things never change.
Lord & Taylor: Vintage New York During the Holidays
Lord & Taylor is the oldest luxury, specialty-retail department store chain in the United States. Samuel Lord, an immigrant to the United States from England, and George Washington Taylor, his wife's cousin, founded the store in 1826 on Catherine Street in Manhattan. Lord & Taylor opened its flagship store and headquarters on Fifth Avenue between 38th and 39th streets on February 24, 1914.
